International Whaling Commission's new Whale Watching Handbook released.
The new Handbook aims to support the industry and its regulators, as well as members of the public, to ensure long-term sustainability for both the whale populations and the communities whose prosperity has come to rely on their presence. It has been developed as a collaboration between the IWC and the Convention on Migratory Species, and can be accessed here: https://wwhandbook.iwc.int/en/ The attached press release has more information.
The IWC has also newly set up a Twitter Account, through which news items can be followed and re-tweeted: https://twitter.com/iwc_int?lang=en . The IWC would be grateful if you could re-tweet as appropriate and share through your professional networks.
